The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) is the leading national association for business enterprise wireless users, and for the manufacturers, resellers and communication sales and service providers that serve the private wireless industry. A frequency coordinator certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), EWA provides consulting services, frequency coordination, license preparation, spectrum management and associated services to the business/industrial/land transportation and public safety communities. EWA’s advocacy transforms public policy, and its services support business productivity by providing reliable guidance regarding spectrum and wireless technology access decisions. Members and clients trust EWA to process more applications per year than any other frequency advisory committee. EWA is the developer of Cevo®, a powerful online frequency coordination solution, which simplifies the FCC license application process and allows users to select their own frequencies, and is the creator of Cevo Go™, a mobile app that delivers certified frequencies in hours, not days.
The Consortium For Certified Service Centers is a not-for-profit organization developed not only to represent distinguished independent electronic service centers, but also to provide a standard that the consumer can rely on when seeking quality customer service. The CSC program was designed to identify service facilities that strive to provide honest, responsible, competent, and world-class customer service. This sets not only a service industry standard, but more importantly, promotes positive experiences for consumers.
The NWCC is a nonprofit association of organizations that represent the wireless communications interests of public safety, critical infrastructure, business, industrial, transportation, private and common carriers, and manufacturers of wireless communications equipment.
